day twenty eight: impatience

We’ve spent almost a full month discussing patience, how to stay patient and more – but I think I’ve overlooked the times when impatience rules.

It rules a lot of the time.

On this late Sunday evening, I pray for grace and peace and patience. All three of those words are different, yet they all mean to overcome an undesirable circumstance and be better for it on the other side. And in this last week of October, I pray Colossians 3:12-14 for all of us in this fight against impatience and lack of endurance.

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

See you tomorrow
